Our Feedback
I find your website useful and easy to us. I also enjoy your changing ads. in papers and mags. On Saturday at the Garden Organic AGM Professor Ian Lang, talking about Food Security urged us all to grow more fruit. He pointed out that in Britain we produce a mere 5% of the fruit we eat, and we should consume 9 a day not just 5 a day fruit and veg. Last November I planted your Polka raspberries. They are now strong tall vigorous canes, tallest I have ever grown and producing throughout the summer. I'll need steps to pick the late ones!! My first purchase from you was before the web, shrub roses for my allotment for the vit. C. Enjoyed your family history.

July 2022 On The Veg Garden

No Better Time To Grow Your Own?

Summer already - not sure how that happened!

For us it has been another busy Spring and early Summer, with very little time to do anything apart from grow plants and send them out to customers - our gardening friends. But despite the last few months having been basically 'work, work work' we have made sure to tend our home veg patch; ten minutes one day, twenty a few days later - probably less than an hour a week in total. The picture above is the result!

Growing your own works on so many levels - a little bit of exercise, great for your mental health (even we relax when we're working on our own veg patch) - and as food prices sky rocket a supply of virtually free food!

So now in the garden (veg and ornamental) it is time to relax a little and enjoy the bounties from your earlier efforts.

But as Summer starts to creep towards Autumn it will soon be time to think about sowings for Autumn and over-Winter crops. There's no sign of this year slowing down after all!

We have decided to keep the nursery closed to calling customers for the foreseeable future. We do, of course, continue to offer a full mail order service - and 'contactless' collections can be arranged (via our online Checkout) for more local customers.

Be sure to follow all our antics at the nursery on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram you'll be able to see what we're doing when - a good guide to what you should be doing too!

Happy Gardening

Stephen, Serena, Molly & Oriana Shirley - And All The Team At Victoriana
